Okay I know no one under 50 uses the word Bonanza, but that was all I could think of....SO Austin's 5th birthday was at the bowling alley (therefore his guest list was very limited and all his choosing). There were 7 boys and 2 girls. It was so funny to see the difference. The boys would bowl and then all stand there being silly. The girls would bowl and then go sit down. Oh, I need a girl! :) Austin had alot of fun, and I was just glad I didn't have to clean my house!


I had to post Austin's bowling score. 103!!! Okay, yes there were bumpers, but still....he definitely did not get his abilities from me. I rarely ever break 100!

AND Thank you Katie for the header and telling me how to make big pictures!! You are the best! I figured out how to lose the maroon underneath my header, pictures, and sidebar. I was so proud of myself :)

My baby.......

....just turned 5!

Austin was a great baby, a pretty good toddler, I'm suprised he survived 3, but he is now an awesome 5 year old! He is my cuddler and he is always trying to protect me. I love him so much, and now I am crying! Happy Birthday Austin!

These three pictures are from the great, upcoming photographer, Kylie :) She took these in nursery (in case you don't recognize) and I thought they were so cute!

Then I have to post a picture of my lil' piggy. He likes to pull up his chair into the pantry and pick out his snack. I just think it is so funny. I find him in there quite often. Now, I know you are looking at the disarray inside the pantry....I blame Brenden!!!


I love being a mom. Unfortunately, no picture to post because my camera was in the van and Jeff had the van...but I still thought the story was so sweet. I put the boys to bed and Brenden kept getting up, which he does every night. So the last time, I spanked him (and he is definitely my sensitive child, so this is all it takes). Well, about 30 minutes later, I went to turn off their music and make sure they werecovered up, and Brenden had crawled in bed with Austin and they were all snuggled together. I asked Austin about it the next morning, and he said that Brenden got in bed with him and he (Austin) rubbed his back. How sweet are they! I have to remember these moments because during the day when they are screaming at each other, I can know that they DO love one another!
